  1. 'Tis The Season

    Carving is fun. I live in the city so it's hard to carve. I like my neighbors and they like me so running a gas saw isn't in my best interest. I've been on the search for a good electric saw. Not sure about this Makita. Chain speed is a little slow so it digs hard. I haven't been able to get a...
  2. Chainsaw carved signs

    Haven't carved in a while. My detail saw was stolen and I just recently got around to replacing it. Hard to do much as I live in the city. These signs are pretty quick and a lot of fun. I have a few of these to make for friends. I need to work on certain letters of the alphabet some more...
  3. Mesquite Carved Vessels

    These are new carved vessels that were completed for our last mesquite show and are now headed to England, along with a ribbon sculpture and the Shangrila Rocker. In an effort to promote mesquite products overseas we sent a few pieces to display and sale. We're excited to go global and confident...
  4. Chainsaw carved Eagle Family

    Finished up with this 'stump' carving. My client said he wanted an eagle with the body facing his house and the head facing North. I asked him if i could do my own add-ons as long as I made the eagle he wanted. This is how it turned out. I added a flying eagle below the one he wanted, and then...

  7. Eagle Chainsaw Carving, by Josh Carte

    I haven't done much chainsaw carving lately… I reworked and finished this eagle yesterday. He's a little shinier than what I prefer, but he will last a long time outdoors this way- kinda like having lots of extra sunscreen :) I used a couple of different chainsaws to shape up this eagle. I then...
  8. Trout in Tree

    This guy had a pine tree taken down that came through the middle of his deck that looked out over a pond. The tree was 38 inches diameter and there was 3 1/2 feet of tree below the deck and 14 feet above the deck. It took us about 14 months to get to the carving day and in that time the pine...
  9. Babe's in Toyland ...

    This particular client had a fascination with "Babe's in Toyland" and the desire to poses the largest toy solder on the block. I think something in all of us that have ever played with toy soldiers sparks up and wonders just how fierce our sandbox army would have been with a company of 6'6"...
  10. It's a bear, holding a fish - who's eating a frog?

    Everyone seemed to like the "Babe's in Toyland" solider - this carving is another piece by our chainsaw carver Bob Eigenrauch. Bob doesn't generally show off, and most of the time doesn't realize just how talented he actually is. So, I figure it's my duty to solicit and pass on a bit of feedback...
  11. MERMAID TAIL STOOL

    I was asked to do a chainsaw carving demonstration by GDB in Bedford Qc. ,Sat May 26, 2012, for a Husqvarna open house event. Here is the project I made with a 338xpt and an old telephone pole. Great saw! Thx for the opportunity Eric and Husqvarna.
  12. "Kaleidoscope" Juniper Carved Vessel

    "Kaleidoscope" Juniper carved vessel-This came from an alligator juniper log. I wanted to create a vase type vessel. I use a chain saw to do most of the carving then go to a series of grinders and sanders. It is quite a lengthy process but well worth it.The last picture gives you a reference to...
  13. "Tidal Wave" Juniper Carved Vessel

    "Tidal Wave" juniper carved vessel-Here is another carved vessel .This was a huge alligator juniper burl . Which is a very rare and unusual find. The champagne glass gives a perspective of the size of this piece. The burling is throughout the entire piece, making it quite incredible. Turquoise...
  14. "Divided" Juniper Carved Vessel

    "Divided" Juniper Carved vessel-This one was at the base of the tree were the trunk split off into two. Thus the name "Divided". The middle has beautiful burling and turquoise was inlayed into the cracks. The piece was initially carved out with a chainsaw and then grinders were used to finish...
  15. Bear End Table, Chainsaw Carving

    I carved this bear end table from a single piece of Eastern White Pine. The sculpture was almost entirely created with a chainsaw alone. For the small details, I used a few hand tools. I used a torch to burn the wood to make it dark, and finished the carving with two coats of UV resistant spar...
  16. Black Bear Chainsaw Carving

    18" tall, 12 1/2" diameter, 22 pounds. This is a large piece! It makes quite a statement! This sculpture began as a large, White Pine log. I shaped the log into a bear using several different chainsaws. Once I went as far as I could with a chainsaw, I used a torch and sanders to rid the piece...
  17. Eagle Chainsaw Carving

    I carved this eagle in a piece of Eastern White Pine. I used a chainsaw, torch sanders and a Dremel. Almost all of the work was completed with the chainsaw, but other tools were necessary to get to the look that I desired. This carving is finished with two coats of UV resistant spar urethane...

    *finished pictures yet to taken and posted This is a 50" diameter end grain white oak slab, of two conjoined trees. It's around 120 years old, and came off a property in Chester, NJ. The client was heavily landscaping their back yard and my buisness partner came in to do the initial logging...
  19. Little Bear Carving Chainsaw Only

    I carved this cute, little bear using a chainsaw and torch ONLY. No other tools were used. Sure, I could have gotten more detail using smaller tools, but I want to show how much can be accomplished on such a small scale using a chainsaw only. I like to use Stihl chainsaws. To carve something of...
  20. Skull Chainsaw Carving

    I carved this skull giving the "devil hand" in a piece of White Pine. My primary tool of destruction was a chainsaw with a dime tip. The dime tip allows me to get into a lot of places that I could not get into otherwise. Once I went as far as I could with the chainsaw, I moved on to a torch...
